muileanu-bra, t.m. Qnern. ("for illustrations 
and names of parts see bra.) The quern was 
formeriy the only mill for corn-grin ling used 
in the Gaidhealtachd. It is still in use in 
many parts of northern Europe aud in Asia, 
and the " two women grinding at the mill " 
(qiurn) may he seen to-day in Xazareth ex- 
actly as they were in the days of Christ. The 
implement consists of two stones, the lower 
being about two feet in diameter, and com- 
monly hollowed to the depth of about six inch- 
es. This hollow is of equal depth and dia- 
meter. Within this is placed horizontally, a 
smooth round flag about four inches thick, 
and so fitted to the cavity that it can Just re- 
volve with ease. Through the centre of this 
revolving fl ig there is bored a hole for convey- 
ing the grain. In me lower stone, in the cen- 
tre of its cavity, there is fixed a wooden pin 
on which the upper stone is placed in such 
ex'ict e^niponderance, that, though then be 
Horn * friction from their contact, a little force 
applied will raa'ce tUe upper stone revolve f<>r 
several times, when there is no grain under- 
neath. On the surface of the upper stone, 
and near the edge, are two or three holes, just 
de;>p enough to hold in its place the stick by 
which ir. is turned round. The working of the 
quern is left to the women, two of whom, 
when the gram is properly dried, sit squat- 
ting on the ground, with the quern between 
them -in<l singing loudly an appropriate song, 
perform their work, on* turning round the 
stone with the handlo placed in one of the 
hol-'S. and the other dropping the corn in 
through the lar^e holo. The law of Scotland 
at cnvjtttd in vain to discourage tho use of the 
quern. In the year 1218 it was enacted ''that 
n ! man shall presume to grind quneit, mais- 
loch or rye, with hand mylnes. except he be 
co npelled by storm, and be in la'-!v of mylnes 
i;uhilk should grind the sam ;n , and in this

prpatn,ir^rtchd, $.f. There are two games in 
Uist called by this name. 

1. A game like quoits or pitchers. Two 
*rge stones or props are set up on end at a 
Jistance from each other of about 20 yards. 
The number of players varies from two to six. 
If more than two play, they may do so singly 
or in picked sides Tru only articles needed 
arj the prop* and two flat pieces of stone, as 
nearly balanced as possible, wherewith to 
toss. The game goes by points, a certain 
number, usually 21. beini; agreed on as gntne 
The pointing or scoring, which is not reckon- 
ed in the same wav anywhere else, is as foll- 
ows in Uist.. Three points if you knock the 
prop down fairly, one point if that pitcher lies 
nearer the prop than any otlmr, one point if 
your other pitcher lies nearer than any of your 
opponent's. Thus, if your two quoit* he near- 
r the proo than your opponent's two, you 
have two points ; if only one is nearer then 
you have only one point. la the case of two 
players, both stand at the same prop and toss 
at the opposite prop endeavouring to hit 
or lie as near to it as possible. In the case 
of sides (say, two on each .side) one member 
of each side takes the stones, while the other 
two stand at the opposite prop, and toss each 
his two quoits to the best of his ability. 
These are then in turn tossed towards them 
again by those at the other end, the game 
counting, as usual, in points. 

propatairtwhd(2\or lengail shaighdear f fel- 
ling the soldier.) Game played on the same 
principle as skittles. There are two equal si- 
des of any number, usually about seven, and 
each player has a prop, which he sticks in the 
irround just enough to make it stand. Each 
player is provided with two stones for throw- 
ing at the props. The side which wins the 
toss then starts to knock as many as passible 
of th-iir opponents' props down in this way. 
The first man in the row throws his two quoits 
trying to knock as many down as he can ; his 
neighbour follows, and so on, till all the row 
have thrown their quoits. If they knock 
down all the opposing props, the game is 
theirs ; if not, their opponents start in exact- 
ly the same way to knock theirs down. If 
they sucreed, they win the '4m ; if noc, the 
props are set up again nnd" play recomm-n-

, ($m\,willow-tre<>) the 16th. letter of the Gaelic 
alphabet now in use. It has two souads 
1st., .smxll like sh, iu sheet, when, i'i the same 
syllable, it is preceded or followed by ? or i, 
as, bris, break ; seimh, quiet ; sniomh, twine,; 
steidh, foundation. 2nd. broad, like s in sun, 
IAt, in all other situations. Exceptions is, 
am. iprou. iss) ; so, 'A(S, (pron, sho, and ac- 
cor lin'ily spelt sfo in this work) ; sud, yon, 
(pron. shoot, and accordingly spelt siod in this 
work.) 9, when aspirated, is like h in him, 
as, shuidh, sat ,(pron, hooie) ; shrann, snorted 
(hra,wn.aio as ow in brown.) Before I and 
n, sh is almost, if not altogether silent, as, 
shlanuich, heiled ; shniomh, twitted. S, rot- 
Iow3<l by a mate consonant is never aspirated. 
& whan preceded by the letter t with a h-y- 

phen is silent, as an t-.sluaigh, of the people 
(pron. an ilooay.) 'S in expressions such as 
" 's e sej an daine," is itonnded as sh. 

The slender sound of is iieard in Arran io

esan, (pron. eisean) piseir (p?ase,) uir.sino 
(door-post,) dels (ready.) dilis ^faithful,) fail- 
eis (shadow.) There "is no sound in Arran 
and Kitityrt in the combinations rd and rr,

nounced ant-seo,ant-sin,an t-si^d, and some- 
times ami a seo, anna sin, anna .siod ; ant 
ana an seo, ann an sin, ann an siod. Ini- 
tial r has no inserted (., as, srath, sruth (not 
strath, struth), except str.ic (to tear) strac, 
(to stroke) and strub (a spmt.) Some dia- 
lects, on the contrary, have strath, str6u,<fcc., 
bur, srac and smb. Before/, followed by & 
Blender vowel, as, slishe, sleamhuinn, s has 
its sh sound, :md not, as in soni3 districts, 
its-broad sound.
